Walter Edward Howe 

a member of the Abbot Academy faculty 
as director of choral music, and teacher of 
organ and piano, who died on December the 
sixteenth, nineteen hundred and forty-eight. 
r\ 






Walter Howe came to Abbot in 1928, at which time he estab- 
lished residence in Andover as a near neighbor of the school. His 
musical activities increased rapidly, for at this time he became Festival 
organist of the widely-known Worcester Musical Festival in addition 
to his duties as choral conductor of the annual summer series at 
Chautauqua, New York. In 1933, he became the Festival's associate 
conductor and manager, and two years later became conductor of the 
Worcester Philharmonic Orchestra. Mr. Howe was named the Festi- 
val music director in 1944, and was known for his work as a composer. 

As director of Choral and Fidelio, Mr. Howe was one of the 
teachers who came in contact with every Abbot girl and every Abbot 
girl held a warm affection for him. We loved him for his great interest 
in our success, for the simplicity with which he carried his own 
achievements, for his friendliness and humor, and for his great gift 
for putting music into our lives both as an inspiration and as a useful 
possession. 

Generations of Abbot girls join us, the Class of 1949. in paying 
this tribute to our beloved teacher and friend. Walter Edward Howe.

Class History 



When we entered Abbey 
House as Abbot Preps, we 
felt that we were indispens- 
able to Abbot life, even 
though we did "Sit in back in 
chapel seats." Our memories 
of that year are the trek 
through the hockey field to 
Will Hall and the famous 




song "Vegetables Are Very 
Good." 

The next year we put 
away childish things (in- 
cluding our back -row seats) 
and became juniors, adding 
to our numbers in Sherman, 
Abbey, and Homestead. 
Our amazing abilities were 
shown as we danced merrily 
around the May Pole on the 
circle. 

As Senior-Mids, we at 
last were able to go to the 
Prom, and soon afterwards, 
we had the responsibility 
of the Bazaar. At the end of 
the vear we were initiated 
into the senior parlor and 
bidding the seniors a fond 
farewell, we looked forward 
with great expectations to 
our senior year. 

Upon our return in Sep- 
tember we were greeted with 
many new privileges and 
responsibilities : the senior 
parlor, our senior picnic 
with smoking, hot dogs, 
and sand ; our frequent trips 
to Boston, and finallv be- 
fore Christmas, our senior 
rings. After vacation, we 
settled down to the serious 
business of studying for 
mid-years, with visions of 
Wellesley, Vassar, and 
Smith floating through our 
heads. This task over, we 




iJU 



flung our cares aside and 
took oft' for Intervale, 
where the brave went "half 
way" and the timid took to 
the ski-mobile (without 
skis). In the spring, amid a 
wild flurry of events, gradu- 
ation was upon us. With 
families and friends around 
us, we bid our last farewell 
to Abbot.

Coming Attrac 

In the jungles of Africa, the 

Rev. Brown is preaching the gospel. 

while her assistant, Camilla Titcomb, 

is leading the cannibal choir in "Onward 

Christian Soldiers." In the wilds of northern 

Canada, Libby Merrick is sitting on a pile of 

snow knitting socks to send to President Massie of 

Hindman University. In Russia, Wendv Scottski 

is being awarded the year's motherhood medal. 

while Bunny Wyckoff is still waiting for a letter. 

In Washington. Jo West, having tripped over her 

crutch in anxiety to view the inauguration of the 

first woman president. Barbara Hamby. is in the 

hospital tended by Jo Hall and Mercy Barnes, 

while Zipper Pierce draws pictures of her injuries. 

As thev all at the same time turn on their 

radios, there float around the world the strains of 

Bogardus' Country Slickers playing selections 

from the four B's (Brahms. Beethoven. Bach and 

Backes.) The program is interrupted by a news 

flash that the U.N. assemblv room was destroyed 

by fire. Among the missing is Rep. Asirvatham 

who was 32 years old. while Reps. Davis and 

Gonzales escaped unhurt. They had been debating 

over whom to elect President of the world. 

A sports announcer now reports on the success- 
ful season of the Yale football team, coached by 
Eli Bozvan. and today's game between the Boston 
Red Sox (under the management of Birdie Dow) 
and the Boston Braves. The umpire was Joan 
W \\ ' Webster, mother of eight of the Braves. The 

Braves won, 59-0. 

The Metro-Goldwyn-Black theatre of the air 
now comes on sponsored by Behre's new-method, hand-knit Argyles, and 
starring Ingrid Bronaugh and Hedy Quigg. Faith Johnson, editor of Life 
magazine, will criticize. 

Reports from Atlantic City come through announcing that the Miss 
America title has been won by Sally Gibbs, Miss Cranberry Bog of 19(>.3. 
Present at the contest was the New York socialite, Mrs. Honor Astor, dressed 
in a bluish-black blanket by Bleecker, made famous by the exotic Paris- 
ian model. Sharon Purviance. 



[38] 




tions-1965A.D. 

There is a pause between pro 
grams while Chiquita Olney sings, 
"Apply Appell's Appealing Shampoo 
for an appalling appearance." 

And now the broadcast is switched to 
the scene of the Annual Animal show just in 
time to hear that Joan Oven's gorgeous golden 
Guernsey has won the National Cow Cup. In 
the canine section, Sally Nesbitt's champion 
cockers missed first prize because of fugitives from 
Espaillat's flea circus. The blue ribbon for mis- 
cellaneous creatures was awarded to Marshall's 
wonderful worms, and the prize for the most plen- 
tiful animal to Jo Parks, guardian of the Valley of 
the Shmoon. 

Another news flash comes in that Pendleton has 
just been appointed Secretary of the Navy by 
President Hamby, and Herrera has been appointed 
Decorator of the Interior. 

The next program is "The Adventures of 
Madame Bonzo Je tiers," who has been in a trance 
for six days while singing her theme song, "Be- 
witched, Bothered, and Bewildered." It is rumored 
that the purpose of the trance is to solve the 
problem of Jan Woodward's male harem which 
increases at an alarming rate every time she goes 
to Boston. The program is interrupted by an 
emergency call for Dr. Newhall, famous psychi- 
atrist, to look into the sad case of the great natu- 
ralist Mazie Mansfield, who has gone berserk look- 
ing for four-leaf clovers. 

Now comes "The Scientific Hour," sponsored by 
Stevens' Terrific Telescope Polish. The main 

speaker is Deborah Williams, professor of Physics at Cornell, who makes 
public the new theory of Perpetual Motion just discovered by her assistant, 
Joan Gallagher. The next speaker is Professor Jordan who discusses her 
recent debate with Einstein on the theorv of Relativitv. She attributes her 
success to Wadleigh's great book, "Win Your Point or Die." 

Trainer Jane Noss reports that her protegee Daring Dartty has made a 
record high jump to the unknown planet Velveeta, where she met Woolver- 
ton, the hermit, who has been missing for the past decade.

UNDERCLASSES 

Included in our parade are the animals, 
whose gay cavortings are a constant delight to 
their public. . . 

We have them all; elephants, giraffes, 
hippos and monkeys— and all of them are 
part of the show, for without them our circus 
could not be successful.

ORGANIZATIONS 

Our parade winds around the circle, 
centering attention upon three rings, whose 
activities provide interest for all ... . 

Come watch the middle ring — the skillful 
performance shows much cooperation among 
its performers .... 

Great patience and agility are shown by 
the stars of the other two rings, also. . . . 

Behind the parade, various sideshows, 

concession stands and roustabout groups

What does Student Govern- 
ment mean at Abbot? Perhaps 
you see Penny with her gavel 
and notebook at school meet- 
ings — Perhaps you see the Stu- 
G board with its timely notices. 

Basically. Student Govern- 
ment is the cooperation be- 
tween faculty and students to 
better regulate the school. The 
Executive Council is comprised 
of the council officers plus the 
president of the Senior cla>-. 
AAA. ACA and the Day Schol- 
ars. 

This year, the council under- 
took two important projects; 
we revised the constitution of 
Abbot, and put into practice 
the new Citation system of 
awards and privileges for good 
study habits, citizenship and 
sportsmanship. 



[48] 



The A.C.A. has been active 
this year in helping less fortunate 
people in all parts of the world. 
The World Student Service 
Fund has united with us, in 
order to centralize our dona- 
tions. 

Christinas was a busv time, 
with the boxes of dolls and gifts 
for Hindman, the visit with 
fruit baskets to the Old Folks' 
Home, and our Christmas Partv 
for underprivileged children, all 
of which were a success. 

A.C.A. also puts on the Old- 
Girl-Xew-Girl Partv, and con- 
ducts several chapel and vesper 
services. All in all, A.C.A. is one 
of our most necessary organiza- 
tions.

Sports 



The sports program this year be- 
gan with a day of wild excitement — 
Initiation Day. Both the Gargoyles 
and Griffins gave the new girls a 
heartv, if rather noisv, welcome as 
they joined the teams. 

The Fall season continued in the 
traditional way with hockey, basket- 
ball and tennis matches and ended in 
the climax of Field Day. Under the 
wonderful leadership of Miss Judd, 
a new member of our staff, and Miss 
Elroy, the season was full of activity 
and lots of spirit. 

To our great disappointment, Old 
Man Winter did not produce much 
snow this vear. While we had the 
opportunity, skiing and ice-skating 
were in order, in spite of the dimin- 
ishing supply of Ace bandages in the 
Infirmary. The Seniors were the only 
ones who really got a taste of winter 
sports. Apparently Intervale did not 
lack snow and, from all reports, they 
enjoyed themselves immensely, 
"coming down from Cranmore. . .".

For most of us, though, dance and 
gym were the afternoon activities 
and the dancers and gym enthusi- 
asts had their heyday. Just before 
spring vacation, they put on an 
exhibition of their talents; Ringling 
Brothers and Ted Shawn do not 
know what they are missing ! 

After we had recovered from 
Spring vacation, we found ourselves 
playing a game in which it is very 
easy to hit one's opponent over the 
head — Lacrosse. This is something 
new at Abbot, and if the list of 
casualties is not too long, we hope it 
will continue. Tennis was again a 
major interest, along with our ail- 
American Baseball League. 

A great deal of thanks is due Janie 
Woolverton and Anne Dartt who 
have led the Griffins and Gargoyles, 
and to Jo West, whose boundless 
enthusiasm as head of AAA added 
much to the spirit of the rest of us. 
The games have been literally roar- 
ing with excitement and many voices 
were lost, but it was worth it.

Courant 




For years, Courant has been the 
Abbot literary magazine, always 
published with the hope that it 
will carry a representative cross 
section of the school's writing 
talent. Last year, the Courant staff 
had the seventy-fifth anniversary 
of the magazine on which to capi- 
talize, seemingly leaving this 
year's board with a slight handi- 
cap. With this challenge before 
them, 1949's editors plunged in 
and presented the school with two 
issues of Coward which reached 
and excelled its traditional high 
degree of excellency.

the Circle. 



year was to begin 
Knowing nothing about how a 
yearbook is formed, we soon began 
to learn under the able guidance 
of Mrs. Reeves and our printer, 
Mr. Cole. 

Draper classroom was the scene 
of our staff meetings each Monday 
afternoon to discuss our problems 
and inspirations. The hardest part 
of our job was to get started, de- 
ciding upon the theme, layout and 
drawings, but with Elly urging us 
on, and the realization that the 
deadline was drawing near, we 
quickly got into the swing of 
things; the result is in your hands.

Fidelio 



FIDELIO SOCIETY 

President: Olney 
Accompanist: Bozyan 
Librarian: Bogardus 



After eagerly scanning the 
Fidelio list last fall, we tripped 
over to chapel where, under 
our beloved leader, Mr. Howej, 
the rehearsals began every Mon- 
day and Friday. Our first busi- 
ness was to elect our officers, 
who have done their jobs so 
well. 

At the Thanksgiving and 
Christinas services we led the 
school in the traditional hymns 
and sang some as a group. 

Since the sudden death of Mr. 
Howe during Christmas vaca- 
tion, Miss Friskin has directed 
us in the rehearsals for our con- 
certs with Exeter and Andover. 

With the coining of commence- 
ment, Spring Fidelio took over 
and we seniors stepped out to 
let the underclassmen continue 
our Fidelio.

fDeceased December 16. 1948 



This year, the performing fleas 
got off to a wonderful start with 
five new members. Despite our 
lost lines, lost cues, and late 
appearances, A.D.S., under the 
direction of Miss Hale, pro- 
duced Letters to Lucerne. 

Dulcy, the Senior play, was 
great fun to give. Rehearsals 
were a constant repetition of 
Is-A-Bell's "Louder" (until she 
broke) and our director's agile 
leaps from the floor to the stage. 

We all want to thank Miss 
Hale for the understanding help 
she has given us in dramatics 
and for the real part she has 
taken in our Senior year.
